“This recipe comes from Not Just Cheesecake! a low-fat, low-cholesterol, low-calorie dessert cookbook. It is wonderful! This is made with yogurt cheese and produces a very creamy low-fat pie. The longer you strain the yogurt the more whey is released and the firmer the cheese. I have been making it for years and use my microwave graham cracker crust.”
